In this book, highly recognized doll costumer Louise Hedrick offers a collection of 56 patterns, authentically adapted from those presented in La Poupée Modèle between 1864 and 1874, for creating an entire wardrobe to fit both the classic 18-inch and 12-inch dolls of the period, and today s popular 18-inch and 12-inch reproduction French fashion dolls. From whitework undergarments and nightwear to dresses, headwear and outerwear, the 28 ensembles in this book encompass a complete wardrobe for a fashionable doll. By making slight variations in the patterns, fabrics and trims, a seamstress can enlarge this comprehensive wardrobe even further.
